Uverse coax might have been cut

Had a new fence put in around my house today and I think my cable may have been cut during the digging process.
Is there a test I can do at the AT&T box on the side of my house. Possibly with a multimeter to see if the coax was cut?

First it would not be coax. It would be twisted pair drop wire

If you have a proper test jack at the NID, you can see if your modem syncs up @ the test jack

Call 811 before you dig (General Service Announcement)

The "DigTess" or 811, should have been called prior to doing any digging in the yard. Essentially, now if your cable(s), or drop wires are damaged, either you, or your contractor, will be getting a bill for the repair.
